I'm extremely happy to announce that Bill Murray has confirmed his involvement with Ghostbusters 3! This is the first time that Murray has said that he will be in the film. He confirmed this awesome little bit of news with mailonsunday. He also confirmed some rumored news offered up by Sigourney Weaver not too long ago. This little bit of information could be considered a *spoiler*, but I think it's great news.
It's been rumored that Murray’s character Dr. Peter Venkman would appear in Ghostbusters 3 as a ghost. This is another bit of news that he's confirmed. In fact, it was his idea. He explains in the interview that he wouldn't do the movie unless he was a ghost! Here's what he had to say,
I’ll come back in Ghostbusters III only if I get to be a ghost. I said to them, ‘I’ll do it if you kill me off in the first reel.’ So now they are going to have me as a ghost in the film.
So there it is! Murray's gonna be in it! I really like the idea of Venkman coming back as a ghost in the third Ghostbusters. This seems like something everyone will be able to have a lot of fun with. I assume Venkman will have a decent size and fun role in the film, after all, he is one of the main characters. I can't wait to see how this all turns out.
So now that all that all this news is confirmed, what do you think about Murray's role in Ghostbusters 3?
